    Hello! Thanks for the great work, this is the far best skin according to me.

    However, I need to use background pictures in squad page etc. but I cannot see well. So, how can I change transparency (to see the background pics)?

    Thanks in advance :)

    hello and thanks for the great skin.

    can i ask for a little change? in the batery icon (i use a laptop to play) can you make so that instead of the icon it appears the percentage of batery remaining? it would be great.

    continue the great work

    Great work! I've just tested the new version and it works perfectly for me (match engine and also all the 3D screens).
  • Shaunessy1983's avatar
    Love this skin and will try now and feedback. Also how can we remove the blurred effect?
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    Just uploaded a fix for the 3D screen overlay issue. I'm away right now so I can't test it, but it *should* work. If someone can download the new version and confirm for me that would be great.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    Download the skin again, I patched client object browser right away when they updated the game.

    SI changed how the backgrounds are layered so I'll have to figure out a new way to do the background.

    After the full game release 3D match is not showing. Here you can find a temporary fix:

    Is there a way to have dark skin on editor?
  • md86md86md86's avatar
    @wannachupbrew: I downloaded the latest version of this skin, but I get a dark grey backround instead of the manager in the dressing room, see here:

    On the beta it worked perfectly all the time (with older versions of skin), but since I updated to full game and downloaded the newest skin version, like 30 mins ago, it's not working as before. If I click "edit manager appearance" still only the gray background, no manager etc. Any idea?
    Your other skins (3 instant result skins, which don't touch background stuff) work perfectly.

    When to update?
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    Updated for full release. Please download again.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    OK wannachupbrew. I tested it and now it works. Your skin is working. It was my fault.

    But the transparency at the matchscreen is still there. Hihi.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    No. IT's yours,but i have the TCS skin in the skinfolder too. I'll delete the skin and try again. Thanks.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    That's not even this skin. That looks like it's probably TCS:
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi wannachupbrew. Did you see, that you can´t do anything at the tacticscreen if you want to choose one tactic e.g. tikitaka:

  • tomzi031's avatar

  • diameqqq's avatar
    Hey, how can I change the team colours? I mean the red bars on topic screens. I would like to have them grey for every team, including the one i manage.
  • Lupus Immortalis's avatar
    Fixed accent text color is much better now, thanks mate.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi and thanks for the skin. I think here you need to do the background darker, or not?

  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    Whoops, thanks mate. Fixed.
  • KieranMCFC17's avatar
    seems the download link is not working
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    - Changed button colours in the inbox so I could make the bottom link bar darker
    - Changed the accent text colour that @Lupus Immortalis pointed out
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    You need to move the "Dark-Is-Actually-Dark-FM20" folder into your skins folder. So it's: \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\skins\Dark-Is-Actually-Dark-FM20
